    200' (ft) bear crawl as fast as you
    do 100x 50 lb dumbbell cleans from ground to shoulders
    200ft lunge walk as fast as you can
    then do 100x divebomber push-ups
    sprint 200' back to starting point
    do 100x squat + overhead presses with 50 lb dumbbells
    then and do 200' run holding 50lb dumbbell overhead, switch arms at 100'
    drop and do 100x 4-count flutter kicks
    then burpee jump 200' back to starting point as fast as you can
    then finish up with 100x dead lift high pulls with 75 lb weight
    jog 1 mile under 10mins to cool down...
    no rest or dropping dead allowed during the workout

    Rip up one semirotten 15' x 40' deck. Stack the rubble.

    My rheumatologist wouldn't recommend this - the psoriatic arthritis in
    my right knee is getting better, but there is still some residual
    inflamation, and the squats and the burpee jumps would make that a lot
    worse. My physiotherapist has told me that I have to give up trim
    hockey (Dutch field hockey for the elderly) for ever, but this is over-
    careful - once the sulfasalazine has cleaned out the inflamation
    (which takes ages) there's no reason why I shouldn't resume twisting
    my right knee at hockey practice and in games.

    My cardiologist might be more sympathetic - I'm scheduled for a
    session on their exercise bicycle in about six weeks so that they can
    check me out for arrhythmias appearing when the heart is under stress.
    Of course, he won't let me stop taking the anti-coagulants until then,
    presumably because he figures that there is a risk that he might have
    to correct a persistent arrhythmia that this exercise might provoke.

    Cycling downtown and back hasn't provoked anything interesting
    recently, but cardiologist do tend to be over-cautious.

    They say it is just a matter of scale, this workout did make my heart
    feel like it was going to knock a hole in my sternum. You can just cut
    the volume, the pace, and the so-called range of motion on some of the
    movements. The young ones coaching us through these workouts have no
    sympathy for age related limitations, they make us sign a waiver and
    yell at us to keep pushing harder, harder, harder!- and I out do them:)

    Yes- that's a good one, do it as fast as you can, "storm through it":_)

    Been there, done that and spent the next couple of days in bed,
    scarcely capable of moving a muscle. It was some thirty years ago, and
    since then I've paid less attention to the instructors.

  8. Try spending four hours with a 20 pound sledge hammer, breaking up
    concrete. It took the county 45 minutes with a front end loader and
    shovels to fill two dump trucks to haul it off.

    I took a two hour nap, then ripped out a couple truckloads of wood
    lath & horsehair plaster.

    Service to my country? Been there, Done that, and I've got my DD214 to
    prove it.

    What the heck are you doing? Demolishing your house? I've done similar.
    Beware the plaster dust, the plaster is limestone based and enough of it
    will damage your lungs and eyes, wear goggles and a dust mask...

    LOL-I've been doing programmed workouts for an even 40 years now so I
    have some idea of the aftermath. My arms are sore from all the
    divebombers so I will complain bitterly about not including those in our
    workouts with sufficient frequency when I see them again tomorrow morning:)

    The problem isn't the limestone - calcium carbonate - but the lime -
    calcium hydroxide - that was originally produced by heating the
    limestone hot enough to drive off the carbon dioxide.

    Lime (and horse-hair) plaster sets hard as the CaOH in the fresh
    plaster reacts with the CO2 in the air to form CaCO3.H2O, but there is
    always some deeply buried lime that doesn't make it, and that's what
    goes for your eyes and your lungs when you break up old plaster.
